We made a Giant SKYRIM MAP in honor of the 10th anniversary!

This map is 3ftx5ft without the frame. There were 28 total pieces that were arranged to fit on 14 pieces of Cherry wood. Each wood board took about 1.5 hours to engrave and cut. In total there is approximately 21 laser hours into this project.

This map was a mixture of three different map designed that I worked to shoved into one laserable map file. The first map used as reference was from the game itself for the roads/location names, the second map was from reddit user u/Fizzet713 for their tree placement, and third was from James Nalepa (@map_creator on Instagram) for his beautiful art style.
